Our firm can protect your assets during your life and upon your death

A successful wealth management plan protects your assets during your life and transfers as much of your wealth to your beneficiaries as possible.

Drawing on our 40 years of experience, our South San Francisco Bay Area law firm, the Law Offices of K.J. Petsas, PC, can assist you in developing an effective wealth transfer plan.

Maximize your family wealth transfers

After you have worked hard all your life to provide for your family, your wealth should continue to support them throughout your lifetime and after your death. Our firm evaluates your particular circumstances to devise a successful family wealth transfer strategy that might include:

  • Drafting trusts accounts to protect your assets for future generations
  • Transferring your assets into a business partnership or LLC
  • Maximizing charitable giving that is tax deductible and minimizes estate tax liability
  • Giving inter vivos gifts to your loved ones that satisfy IRS criteria

Our lawyers meet with you regularly to review your wealth transfer strategies and revise your plan when appropriate. We may also meet with your spouse, adult children and other parties who play a role in asset management or have a stake in the family wealth plan.
